OK. Some more testing for you. Try going back to the 2K resistance going to the base but remove the cap. I am getting suspicious there might be a problem with the cap leaking current. I have seen that before. With the cap removed again measure the voltage and watch the neon bulb. Also try this with the charging batteries connected and disconnected. You can also try this with another cap if you have one after you have done these tests.

If you have the patience to continue with this and don't mind waiting for my replies we WILL figure out what is going on. I have worked in electronics for over 50 years so I know we can figure it out. Your clear explanations of what you have found are also a big help. Some people just don't know how to describe what they are seeing, but your explanations are very clear.

Take care,
Just because someone disagrees with you does NOT make them your enemy. We can disagree without attacking someone. This means YOU especially BroMikey.
